Planned Parenthood’s Bar Nun Bingo fundraiser makes fun of Nuns:
So says Bill Donohue of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights who made this comment on Planned Parenthood’s religious bigotry:
Tomorrow night in Seattle, Planned Parenthood will stage “Bar Nun Bingo” at Poquitos in the Capitol Hill neighborhood; two days later, it will hold another “Bar Nun Bingo,” this time at the downtown Pike Brewing Company. Both fund-raising events will bash nuns, and will be led by the demonstrably anti-Catholic gay group, Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Pictures of previous “Bar Nun Bingo” affairs show how sick it is.
Planned Parenthood has a long history of Catholic bashing. Its founder, Margaret Sanger, was both a racist and an anti-Catholic. In 1987, it trashed Mother Teresa, calling her an “old and withered person, who doesn’t look the least like a woman.” In 1994, it mocked the Eucharist at the Monmouth County Fair in New Jersey. In 1995, it blamed New York Archbishop John Cardinal O’Connor for the killing of an abortion doctor in Brookline, Massachusetts. In 1998, its opposition to school vouchers led it to brand the Catholic Church an “extremist” group on Long Island.
According to Planned Parenthood Bar Nun Bingo will feature fantastic prizes, yummy food and drink, and delightful special guests from The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence®, The Abbey of St. Joan, a Capitol Hill organization that educates the public on safer sex, queer rights, and other critical community issues.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence®, describes themselves as ” a leading-edge Order of queer nuns. Since our first appearance in San Francisco on Easter Sunday, 1979, the Sisters have devoted ourselves to community service, ministry and outreach to those on the edges, and to promoting human rights, respect for diversity and spiritual enlightenment. We believe all people have a right to express their unique joy and beauty and we use humor and irreverent wit to expose the forces of bigotry, complacency and guilt that chain the human spirit.”
